WHERE WILL YOU BE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD?

Who is the greatest Kingdom of God

Do you know what is in store for you in the Kingdom of God? God gives us some happy, encouraging bits and pieces of insight to that future. It is good to go over them from time to time to be nudged if you will to remember how important the resurrection really is in context to the Kingdom of God. Jesus said in the gospel of Matthew that we will not marry in the resurrection but will be as the angels of God in heaven. He explains rules for outgoing love toward others as in Luke 14:12-14 “When you give a dinner or a supper, do not ask your friends, your brothers, your relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also invite you back, and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

There have been many Christians slaughtered for their beliefs around the world recently and they will be in the better resurrection.

The early Church in the times of the Apostles must have had a deeper understanding of their reward in heaven because there are records of their powerful faith. One such is in Hebrews 11:35 Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection. They did not hesitate to give their lives for Christ.

Not too long ago, twenty one men were beheaded by Muslim extremists because they would not renounce their Christian faith and become Muslims.

Revelations 20:4,6 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

Did you know that not everyone will have the same positions in heaven? There will be ranks! Some will be greater than others.

Matthew 5:19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 11:11 “Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

Matthew 18:3-4 “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Here are some sayings of Christ to ponder. These verses give a lot of insight to what the Kingdom of God in heaven is like, how we should seek it and how to increase our reward.

Matthew 13:24 “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field;

31 “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field,

33 “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”

44 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls,

47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind,

Does the resurrection to the kingdom of heaven have a great draw on your heart?

Matthew 11:6 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”

PROPAGATE?

God created the woman from part of the man. He didn’t create a man
from a man or a woman from a woman. God had created the man and woman to marry and by propagation to create children so that the family of man would increase giving God more children for His kingdom. For this reason God especially gets tremendously upset when men pervert this process.
Be warned!
2 Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the polutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
Don’t change to the ways man, change man to the ways of God!
John 1:4 Jesus is the light in men… for believers, all others are in darkness.
Are you in the light of the truth or in darkness?

WHY DOES SEXUAL ORIENTATION DOMINATE OUR SOCIETY

 

The morals and foundational beliefs of this country’s family values are under attack! Sexual orientation is being flaunted in the faces of all citizens in every facet of our society personally, civilly, and governmentally to the point that one would think that the greater majority of the US population was gay. Just to set the record straight, here is an article that shows how few gays there are in the US straight from official government sources. So why are they given so much power?

I know that I am preaching to the choir and unbelievers won’t have a clue but the Bible tells us that there are certain spirits in high places that are at war with God’ people.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Believers must keep Christ as their banner going forward in battle against these evil forces. We must stay the course and not fall as some will!

2 Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of…

DO NOT FALL INTO THAT TRAP!

National Health Statistics Reports

Number 77 n July 15, 2014

Sexual Orientation and Health Among U.S. Adults:

 National Health Interview Survey, 2013

by Brian W. Ward, Ph.D.; James M. Dahlhamer, Ph.D.; Adena M. Galinsky, Ph.D.; and Sarah S. Joestl, Dr.P.H., Division of Health Interview Statistics

The following is an excerpt from the National Health Statistics Report:

[Results—Based on the 2013 NHIS data, 96.6% of adults identified as straight, 1.6% identified as gay or lesbian, and 0.7% identified as bisexual. The remaining 1.1% of adults identified as ‘‘something else,’’ stated ‘‘I don’t know the answer,’’ or refused to provide an answer. Significant differences were found in health-related behaviors, health status, health care service utilization, and health care access among U.S. adults aged 18–64 who identified as straight, gay or lesbian, or bisexual.]

Such a small percentage of our population and their ways can destroy this nation as we know it. BEWARE!

The evil powers that be are using this issue to confuse and disorient our children to come to believe this is all normal and acceptable. Don’t give up!

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

 Jude 1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;

18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

WE HAVE JUST BEGUN TO FIGHT THE BATTLE FOR CHRIST.

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all,TO STAND.

GOD BLESS YOU!

WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY WAS REVEALED BY JESUS 2000 YEARS AGO!

End Times Hour Glass

Jesus was asked by His disciples when the end of times would be and what it would be like. He gives the most astonishing answers as they could very well be the headline news of today.

There is chaos, division, contention, and mistrust abounding in this nation. There have been killings of citizens and police officers just recently. Raging crowds of protesters have taken to the streets in nearly every major city. Morality in these troubled times is at an all time low. Family values have been chattered. Numbers of professing Christians diminished in recent years.

What our God says about the “Signs of the Times” and the “End of the Age”.

Mark 13:

5     And Jesus, answering them, began to say: “Take heed that no one deceives you.

6     For many will come in My name,

7     But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet.

8     For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.

9     But watch out for yourselves,

13   And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. …

 The Christian faith is being attacked like never before!

 Matthew 24:

12   And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

13   But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

Jesus is saying that the love of many in the Church will grow cold because their faith is weak. They don’t believe God!

 Revelations 3:

15   “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.

16   So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

17   Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ — and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked —

18   I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

19   As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

20   Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

21   To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

 We cannot turn our heads and say that these things are not happening now!

  •  There are those who are trying to pass hate crime laws that would prohibit pastors from teaching what God has to say about sin!
  •  There are wars going on all over the world!
  •  Governments are being overthrown as this is being written!
  •  Our nation is divided because of political unrest!

 Ephesians 4:

17   This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind,

18   having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart;

19   who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

Philippians 3:

18   For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

1 Timothy 1:

9     knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

10   for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,

 2 Peter 2:

6     and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly;

7     and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked

 Jude 1:

7     as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

 

Christianity is singled out! The scriptures above will bring much persecution to the Church if taught from the pulpit today. So you see prophesy is being fulfilled before your eyes now. However, there is no criticism of the Islamic faith for believing and teaching the same thing!

As Jesus said in Mark 13:8

  •  There was much destruction, death and suffering because of a massive earthquake in Japan. There were earthquakes recently in Haiti, in Australia, and China.
  •  Cholera recently came under a worldwide spotlight after Haiti suffered an outbreak following huge earthquake. Doctors said a cholera outbreak in Somalia’s war-ravaged capital has killed more than 20 people.
  •  15 March 2011 The Ministry of Health of Egypt has announced 130 cases of avian influenza A(H5N1) virus confirmed and 144 dead!

 This is just a few examples of the very things Jesus said would happen.

The Guardian

” Major outbreaks of disease have become more common around the globe in the past 40 years, according to the largest ever investigation into emerging infections.

Diseases such as Ebola and Sars, which originally spread from animals, are an increasing threat to human health, and many infections have now become resistant to antibiotics, researchers said.”

 Mark 13:

33 Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.

 Luke 21:

36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

 Matthew 24:

32   “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.

33   So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near — at the doors!

 Lets not be caught being lethargic and not being concerned about when the Lord will

come again saying, “ He delays His coming”. God might decide we are too lukewarm.

 THE LORD WILL KEEP HIS PROMISE “TO COME AGAIN”! Believe in Him!

 WATCH AND PRAY!

FACE THE HATE

Truth-the-new-hate-speech

There was a young man filled with faith preaching about Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in every public place he could find. People found his wisdom and the spirit of which he spoke irresistible.

John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

But some people couldn’t stand what he was preaching because what he was saying convicted their conscience and made them mad.

Romans 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

They got so carried away that they mobbed him and took him before the court, they produced witnesses who lied about him and accused him of making terrorist threats such as saying their religious temple would be torn down.

Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

As they looked at him he didn’t appear to be worried at all. If anything, he looked more confident and filled with faith more than ever. He begin to preach to them and point out their sinful ways showing them how much they could be blessed if they would only turn to God and obey Him.

Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

But when they heard what he had to say they were cut to the heart and their faces became terrible to look at as hate poured out of them.

Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

And he said:” Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God”. The mob started screaming at the top of their lungs to shut him out. The mob had had enough and took Stephen and killed him.

Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder.

This is happening over and over again in China, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and India today! This ugly hatred is slowly growing in the United States. It is now a hate crime to preach the truth on some subjects of the Holy Bible, the foundation of Christianity.

We need to rally behind the martyr Stephen and preach the gospel in the face of adversity. Be filled with the spirit of faith!

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Give God the glory! AMEN!

SHOULD THE GAYS HAVE THIS MUCH POWER?

 

People going to heaven

WILL YOU BE HERE…

 

OR HERE!

OR HERE!

Our nation has made a huge change in morality. The day before I wrote this article, the following news was released.

US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT

By  March 6, 2015 | 4:45 p.m. EST

Hundreds of the world’s largest corporations have a simple message for the Supreme Court ahead of its major April case on state gay marriage bans: Equality is good for business.

Equality Is Good for Business?

What about health and safety? God has some thing to say to these arrogant people!

Romans 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.

19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
25 because they exchanged the TRUTH about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;
27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
32 Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

We the people put poorly misguided leaders in charge of our nation and they say that embracing the lifestyle of approximately 2% of our population is good for business. BEWARE! We are warned by God to examine the spirits at work whether they be of God. Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Pray as you have never prayed before as we are at the crossroads of decision making time!

ARE WE FOR GOD OR AGAINST HIM!

1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Praise God, give Him the glory, believe in His Son Jesus Christ, and pray that you may escape those things that are about to come upon you and be able to stand before the Son of God. Amen!

WHO AM I?

 

Who am I? Really, who am I? I was born in iniquity and conceived in sin!  (Psalms 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.) When I grew up and experienced the world I was saturated with its unholy, immoral, and materialistic system. Believing this to be the norm I immersed myself in its carnal ways.  (Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.) Mistakenly I thought the ultimate joy was having all the immoral and carnal things of this world. (2 Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy) After some time I found myself miserable and unhappy, unable to attain the freedom to do as I wanted in the world. I looked at my beautiful wife and wondered why I treated her the way I did. I looked at my baby son and wondered what kind of life waited for him. I suddenly felt like the lowest of the lowest of men.  I was sick of everything I knew. Something inside me caused me to do something I had never done before. I grabbed my wife’s hand and knelt beside our bed and said: “God, there has got to be something better than this. Please show us what it is.” My heart was hurting! (1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.)

After a short time my wife and I became associated with a church and God took complete charge of our lives from that time to the present. We went through a transitional period from an old way to a new way and looked down upon by some who knew us. (1 Peter 4:4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you) But now we have a loving family of Godly friends in great abundance. (Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God)

Someone might read this and decide to find out for themselves how to be released from the world as we have and be filled with a joy immeasurable by letting Jesus take the weight of the world’s sin off of their shoulders and putting it all on His shoulders. (John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!) Just follow the message in the Apostle Peter’s first sermon: (Acts 2: 38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.) By the grace of God you will be raised up a new creation and walk in newness of life, no longer of this world, but your citizenship will be in heaven from that time forward with a residence in heaven waiting for you to occupy.

Who am I? Who are you? We are all the children of God!

Praise the Lord God and give Him all the glory! Amen!
